Dr. Ricotta is an extremely professional and knowledgeable doctor. He was referred to me by a friend. I looked up his credentials before I made my appointment. I was really impressed by his educational background. I called his office and was really impressed by the kind of service I was given by his secretary. I had my appointment with Dr. Ricotta, and had my tests that he thought I should have, in a matter of weeks. I received the results immefiately. He is GREAT! I felt very informed by him!
